  • UK Electoral Reform – Alternative Vote System
    on Direct Party and Representative Voting Direct Party and Representative Voting Can I draw your attention to a system of voting which would deliver PR has the simplicity of FPTP maintains the single member constituency and doesn t require a huge change from the existing voting system Direct Party and Representative Voting Despite the recent vote in the House of Commons and consequential public debate the chances of a move to Proportional Representation for Westminster elections are remote Those in favour of PR cannot build a coalition The different forms of PR vary in their ability to deliver PR are often complex and difficult to understand and may not be compatible with the single member constituency An underlying problem with the existing system is that the voter is faced with the potential dilemma of voting for the party or for the candidate This works very heavily against independent candidates These voting issues should be separated as follows To meet the demand for political renewal we need 1 One vote for a party to form the government 2 One vote for the Constituency MP This could be by the FPTP system and all on one ballot paper that is the only change we need in the public voting system A further change would be needed in Parliament where one MP one vote is ditched and a fractional voting system introduced The elected Government s strength in Parliament would be determined by the first vote In parliament each MP would exercise a fractional vote If a party got 40 support in the Government vote but 50 of the MPs each of their MPs would have a vote value 0 8 Independents would have a vote value of one Non government bills Free Votes could be determined by one vote per MP Swipe card voting should make it foolproof and simple The Government would then have very precise proportional support not in MPs but in votes Why should it have more or less This system Direct Party and Representative Voting DPR would have the key features of a PR system and single member constituencies No longer would people be disenfranchised Every vote would count It would be easy to vote and easy to count and the outcomes would be quick and easy to understand There need no longer be a conflict between voting for an individual or a party You could vote for your party but not necessarily for the particular local representative Yes it would be difficult for new parties to get started but arguably less so than at present It would make it easier for exceptional individuals or independents to get elected This system would not satisfy the Strong Government lobby those who want the system to throw up a big majority for the winning party regardless of their actual democratic support But at least the battle lines and arguments would be simplified Not only would this system lead to more independent MPs it would give all MPs a measure of independence since they will have been elected as individuals rather than just party representatives DPR is a voting system that delivers PR has the simplicity of FPTP maintains the single member constituency would make it much easier for Independent Candidates to get elected and doesn t require a huge change from the existing voting system It s easy to understand simple to implement has no serious disadvantages It would make an enormous contribution to the radical reforms we need to our political system Reply to Comment Direct Party and Representative Voting Joseph Pestell Comment on Direct Party and Representative Voting Direct Party and Representative Voting That DPR system looks like a very interesting proposal which would certainly encourage more people to vote I had not come across it before One reason that we have had the MPs expenses scandal is that it is not really MPs that we vote for at General Elections but parties So MPs do not feel so answerable to the electors This DPR would give MPs more authority in Parliament to hold Govt to account Possibly some difficulties in appointing MPs to Select Committees but I am sure that could be overcome Reply to Comment Direct Party and Representative Voting Cliff Brown Comment on UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System So in an Alternative Vote System or PR you dont actually vote for the MP just the Party The Party then has carte blanche to nominate in the order they choose who gets the seat in parliament Some democracy that is Also coalition governments like in Italy 42 in 46 years Now that s expensive You would get fringe parties popping up everywhere the ballot paper would be a mile long after a couple of elections First past the post may not be perfect but at least you can vote for your local MP and it creates more stable government I would prefer to see terms limits for MP s in the Commons and Lords introduced Reply to Comment UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System David Comment on UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System No in the Alternative Vote System it s the same as what we have now MPs are listed in advance of the vote and we vote for the candidate not the party In the Alternative Vote System we the voter get to make a second third and fourth choice and if our first choice candidate gets least votes our vote now goes to our 2nd choice candidate if he she has least votes our vote goes to our 3rd choice this continues until one candidate has over 50 of the vote It does not necessarily result in fringe parties like the BNP gaining seats I would say it would possibly help the Lib Dems more than any other party In PR you are kind of right In our EU elections if an MEP gives up his seat the party picks a replacement For example in the general election if Nick Griffin BNP

  • It is clear that party motivated politics is not representing the general
    but for all partys standing for election This would mean having BNP members in parliment but also green party members as well A Party polling 10 of the national vote should be represented by 10 of the members of parliment I believe that this system would not only be fairer but would also be the begining of a huge number of new partys representing more diverse groups This would give the voter a more varied and diverse choice at the polling booths I think this diversity would renew parliment with the possibility of becoming a true talking shop that understands the people it represents Popular Islamification of UK Far right political groups in the UK throughout Europe are Should Britain Leave the European Union Poll Found an interesting article on the BBC website http news bbc co uk 1 hi programmes the daily politics 7949104 stm from the Why I ll Never Vote Conservative at a General Election Political Parties Video UK General Election Hung Parliament Should the Government Ban the Islam4UK Wootton Bassett March Poll Halting Immigration Would be Economic Suicide for the UK Unite Against Fascism UAF BNP Immigration Proportional Representation The Single Transferable Vote 2010 General Election

  • Proportional Representation Single Transferable Vote
    it would take to gain one of the 10 seats The important point is under most forms of PR we won t see dozens of fringe extremist MPs from parties like the BNP We might get 1 or 2 unless there s a massive shift in the vote share to those parties Two weeks ago I didn t understand how PR worked and was concerned at the media reports that if the BNP have 5 they currently have under 4 IF they had 650 candidates in each election of the popular vote they automatically gain 5 of the MPs that s 30 MPs Apparently most in the media either don t understand proportional representation or they are scaremongering to make news since at worst we d have a few BNP MPs David More Comments by David What is Racism BNP are a Political Party are in Decline If you ve been following the BNP since just before the 2010 general election you d know the BNP are in real trouble with infighting money problems and generally self destructive behaviour Apparently BNP councilors are jumping ship and joining the English Democrats for Continue Reading What is Racialism UK Local Elections May 5th 2011 Alternative Vote Better than First Past the Post Although I don t particularly like the Alternative Vote system I agree with Nick a miserable little compromise it s at least better than First Past the Post voting system The vast majority of MPs in the country will be unaffected by AV Continue Reading UK Local Elections May 5th 2011 2010 General Election Results The authors name is David Law Continue Reading General Election Results 2010 General Election Results This site runs on WordPress and uses the poll plugin called WP Polls from http lesterchan net portfolio programming php

  • Explain AV Voting System
    3rd or 4th or 5th etc preferences so why complicate matters by allowing them to be inserted on the ballot paper Surely alternative implies just a choice of two as does the concept of having only a single transferable vote The AV system is used in Australia and does not lead to the extremist parties some fear Also I don t know why the Tories oppose it it is rather like the way they elect their leader In round one everyone votes for their first choice then the candidates with the fewest votes are eliminated and so on so those who voted for an eliminated candidate switch to their second choice the AV system does the same but in one ballot If it s good enough for MPs electing a Tory leader why isn t it good enough for the rest of us to elect a local representative as MP More Comments by ukhuman1st UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System Hi Marc The problem with that is that the House of Lords would then theoretically be far more democratic than the Commons which begs awkward questions of which House really has primacy Continue Reading UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System Hi Michael I see what you are saying but I m still unclear as to how all the different rankings of every voter are brought together to decide the winner In your example if the Green and Lib Dem candidates didn t get Continue Reading UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System Popular Islamification of UK Far right political groups in the UK throughout Europe are Should Britain Leave the European Union Poll Found an interesting article on the BBC website http news bbc co uk 1 hi programmes the daily politics 7949104 stm from

  • In answer: imagine a standard Lab / Tory two-way fight seat. But
    you only listed 1 and 2 your vote would still be wasted in all probability But using all the separate numbers means you could vote SWP for 3 Independent for 4 Lab for 5 So you would be continuing to vote AGAINST Tory until the last possible stage If your 1 2 3 4 all get eliminated your vote will STILL prevent the Tory you don t want getting the seat Had you just had options 1 and 2 this would not have happened your vote would have disappeared Popular Islamification of UK Far right political groups in the UK throughout Europe are Should Britain Leave the European Union Poll Found an interesting article on the BBC website http news bbc co uk 1 hi programmes the daily politics 7949104 stm from the Why I ll Never Vote Conservative at a General Election Political Parties Video UK General Election Hung Parliament Should the Government Ban the Islam4UK Wootton Bassett March Poll Halting Immigration Would be Economic Suicide for the UK Unite Against Fascism UAF BNP Immigration Proportional Representation The Single Transferable Vote 2010 General Election Results UK Electoral Reform Alternative Vote System Tory MP Philip Hollobone May Face Criminal Prosecution
